Your eagerness to insult is throwing you off track here Michael. 

For example, the workload profile of a cluster doing heavy NLP is very 
different than one doing serving as a destination for large scale 
application/web logs. Ditto for P&C risk modeling vs smart meter use 
cases, etc etc...Those are not general purpose clusters. You may - and 
should I'd say - have the NLP use cases in a common analytics environment 
(internal cloud model) for sharing of methods/skills, but putting 
orthogonal use cases on that cluster is not inherently a best practice.

How those clusters should be built does vary, and no it is not uncommon to 
have focused use cases like that. If you know it is going to be a general 
purpose cluster then do build it in a balanced spec.
